Event

Martyn Wyndham-Read at EFC / Edinburgh Folk Club
Martyn has been involved with folk music for over 50 years. In his late teens he left his mothers farm in Sussex and headed off, with his guitar, to Australia where he worked on a sheep station in South Australia. It was while he was there that he heard, first hand, the old songs sung by station hands and became captivated by the songs and the need to know more of them and where they came from grew. He headed off to Melbourne and became part of the folk song revival there and throughout Australia during the early1960s.

Back to England in 1967 where he met up with the renowned singer and song collector Bert Lloyd, who himself had spent time in Australia. Martyn was asked by Bert Lloyd to be part of the album Leviathan on the Topic label and soon after he started recording for Bill Leader and touring extensively worldwide.

In the early 1970s Martyn started the Maypoles to Mistletoe concerts which portray the seasons of the year through song, music, dance and verse and illustration. Martyn is also the instigator of the Song Links Project,

Martyn is currently working with Shirley Collins on a production called Down the Lawson Track featuring stories, poems/songs of the great Australian 'Poet of the People', Henry Lawson with Pip Barnes, Iris Bishop, Gary Holder and Jackie Oates.

Martyn's CD Jackeroo portrays his life through songs both old and new.
